The photo above is of the herb Juniper. Juniper was burned in the Middle Ages to ward off Plague. Juniper branches were a popular strewing herb. As a spice, the berries are used to flavour gin, Chartreuse and game dishes, and the Swedes use them in a beer. They impart the smell of violets to the urine!
Thanks to Christine's website for this information!
